I'm planning to start a cookie business in Toronto. As a beginner, I'm searching for the procedures to start a new business. I have heard about the certification and licensing which are much needed before the start. How is it done? Can someone suggest me the ways to get the certification?

One of my friends in Toronto told me that OntariobusinessCentral in Toronto will help with the starting of a business. Has anyone used their service? If so, kindly share your experience with them.

How many days will it take for the certification and licensing of a new firm? Any idea?

Waiting for your reply. Hope to start my new business as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, I can't help you with Canada, as I live in the US, and the procedures here all vary from state to state. But, hopefully, one of our Canadian members will chime in with advice. Best of luck, and welcome again to the site. I hope you enjoy it!

Hi Glenn, 

I take it you are inquiring about the Food Handler Certification Program and about obtaining a Master Business License. Can you please provide more information about your business? 

Do you plan on opening a brick and mortar storefront with employees or will you be doing everything yourself and simply renting space in a commercial kitchen?

Also, I'm just curious to know if this is a cookie decorating business or something else. The information regarding your business is a little vague (and I don't want to assume), so any additional information would be helpful.
